look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy straw yellow color with a creamy white head. The head slowly fades to a thick ring around the edges and a thin film across the top. Copious amounts of carbonation bubbles rise to the top giving it a lively appearance. Some spotted lacing is left behind.

S: Off the bat, I'm picking up lots sour green apples and touches of barnyard funk. A lemony citrus characteristic also comes through along with yeast aromatics and light spices (black pepper and corriander). An amazing blend of aromas.

T: Unfortunately, the taste does not live up the aroma. I'm left wondering what happened to the green apples and lemon. In their place, I'm still getting some barnyard funk but also some grassy and earthy characteristics.

M: Medium bodied with surprisingly, a light amount of carbonation. It has a refreshingly crisp finish.

O: This was my first (and hopefully not last) offering from Logsdon. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to trying more from this unique brewery.

Bottle: Poured a super pale yellow color ale with a very large foamy head with perfect retention and incredible lacing. Aroma of light coriander with loads of dry Bretty notes with some wheat malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by a mix of coriander, wheat malt with loads of dry Brett notes. Body is light with incredible carbonation. Very refreshing with bone dry finish.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 2/2014. Big gusher upon opening, but didn’t lose any of it. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, grape, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast ester and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, apricot, grape, coriander, wheat, bread, oats, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, apricot, light fruits, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with very smooth, crisp, fairly creamy, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent witbier! All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

4.25/5  rDev +11.8%

Poured a gorgeous cloudy, translucent golden yellow body with three fingers of fluffy, thick white head. A very true to form witbier and quite nice looking. Scents of orange zest and orange flesh, grainy, tangy wheat malt, fruity esters with an aroma of apricot juice, spicy yeast phenols, light notes of white pepper and a perfume-like coriander spiciness providing a true to style balanced spiciness. Overall impression is of a sweet, very fruity, citrus heavy witbier aroma profile with spiciness not being overwhelming, but contributing depth, complexity and balance. Very pleasant and mostly true to style. Flavor begins lightly tart with notes of orange zest and tart orange flesh, pleasantly and softly sweet malt and a light hint of coriander and white pepper. Sourness is of a lightly lactic-like sort, optional to the style yet quite pleasant. Middle is slightly tarter and drier, continuing the lactic-like sourness along with tart orange zest and flesh, a medium-light spiciness with notes of coriander, white pepper, a light wheat malt tartness and graininess. Light sweetness is still present and balances the tartness. Finish is lightly dry with light lactic sourness still present, as well as tart orange zest and flesh, grainy malt, light coriander and white pepper and softly sweet malt keeping it from being too dry. Aftertaste is tangy orange zest, white pepper, coriander and spicy yeast with a touch of grainy wheat malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a tart, orange zest and flesh forward flavor profile with a nice lactic character that is balanced by the softly sweet and grainy malt and the spiciness of coriander and yeast phenols. It is slightly drier than many example as a result, but still maintains a pleasant sweetness at a light level. A very nice witbier that does more than stick to the now standard flavor profile, yet still remains true to the spirit of the style. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high, softly prickly carbonation and a tart, drying, lightly acidic, yet creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a wonderfully refreshing witbier that is very true to form and quite nice. Overall this is an excellent witbier. It has a lovely aroma that is very true to style and a flavor that diverges from style somewhat, but is pleasant and quite well done and still stays true to the spirit of the style. Mouthfeel is very true to form and aids the refreshing combination of flavors. Easily my favorite witbier and well worth trying.

3.58/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a hazy straw yellow with a white, rocky 3-finger head that retains as well as any before finally reducing to a thick film of suds across the surface. Leaves large spots and streaks of lacing on the glass and with good stick.

Smell - Aroma hints at mildly tart lemon and wheat. Faint spice notes sit well beneath, but become more evident as the brew warms.

Taste - Follows suit with the nose; mild lemon tartness and a wheaty malt backbone. Restrained spice that hits mid-taste to deliver a touch of pepper, but ultimately falls flat.

Mouthfeel - Interesting body. Medium build with a light creaminess and low carbonation, then a bone dry finish. Maybe the best aspect of this brew.

Overall - A decent wit. Fantastic body, look and smell, but unfortunately the flavor misses the mark with a fairly mundane profile. I realize wits aren't aggressive in style, but this is about as reserved as wits get.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle No KW 2642, best before January, 2013. Poured from a 750mL bottle into my Hoegaarden tumbler.

Pale lightly cloudy sunglow liquid is capped with a heavily active ivory head. Retains a decent collar. Sandy delicate lacing.

Coriander is quite present in the nose along with red bananas and other esters and suggestions of spice. The malt aroma reveals a bit more complexity suggesting oats in addition to the wheat.

Mild lactic tartness in the palate entry backed with wheat, orange blossoms, unusual spice notes and an odd pronounced fruitiness. Very low hop presence with little to no bitterness. Finishes slightly dry with a lingering acidity and a faintly grainy/grapey aftertaste.

Medium-light bodied though lacking in effervescence to some degree, but the acidity makes up for this.

Very fresh example of the style, well crafted though not perfectly integrated or controlled (a few "wild" and otherwise odd flavors emerge).

3.7/5  rDev -2.6%

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma has honey and coriander upfront and dry grain in the background.
The taste is well balanced. Watery at first, honey sweetness in the middle, mild lemon bitter and finishes with a bracing tart.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's pretty good for a style that I don't usually enjoy.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into an elongated tulip glass, which is as close to the glass recommended on the bottle.

Just an aggressive but in controlled wit. Deep lemon bright opaque yellow colored body, with lots of fine carbonation. A great foamy and bubble bath retention soaped up bleach thick white head, and whipped cream looking clumps and valleys. A few minor floaties in the body, but nothing too crazy. Impressive.

The bouquet is real nice even as it pours you can smell it. Deep notes of clove, and breaded toast. Sharp lemon like citrus and a good sense of yeasty bread dough. Quite nice, and a hint of grassed herb.

Palate comes a bit wet and overly carbonated. Much of the mid palate fills with a little bit of gas, but large sour bursts of citrus lemon juice. Bready depth and flavor hinted on the nose doesn't seem to translate as much on the finish either. Slight lemon soda fizzy, but not too bad.

It's a witbier alright but feels a bit dumbed down once you taste it. It's ok.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a slightly cloudy light golden amber. Fine two finger head with good retention and lacing. Nice active carbonation; looks good. Aroma of wheat, light bready yeast, lemon and a hint of coriander and funk. Flavor has the light wheat, lemon and coriander expected in a wit, but also a distinct funky wild yeast and lactic component. The sourness of lemon is replaced by wild yeast sourness, which seems to express the brett saison orientation of this brewery. The funk is mild and well behaved, so the flavor is well balanced. A bit on the sour side for my taste, but well made and the witbier elements are satisfying. Light to medium bodied, which is appropriate for the style, with active carbonation giving a decent mouth feel. An interesting take on a witbier from a quality brewery. I'm not a big brett fan, so I'm glad I tried this witbier rather than Logsdon's wild yeast ales.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a snifter. Label says Best Enjoyed by 06/2013.

A- Pours a hazy straw color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before popping away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and an abundance of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing slowly slides down the glass.

S- Crisp and Bretty with some sour undertones. Wheat in the backdrop provides a nice template for the overall profile. Mildly funky.

T- The wild yeast plays off the palate gently with a slightly acidic flavor and feel. Somewhat tart as the wheat brings everything together. Possibly some spice thrown in the mix as well. Notes of lemon, apple, pear and white grape.

M- Very crisp with the lightest bit of pucker. Light body and medium-high carbonation.

O- Very tasty spontaneously fermented take on the style. Thank you SatlyMalty for my first Logsdon as it is a good one.

Consumed 8/29/13

Shared with Goblinmunkey7

Appearance: Milky, cloudy golden yellow - foam started bubbling out of the top of the bottle as soon as I opened it, and the carbonation continues in the glass - big, dense, foamy, creamy, bright white head - leaves walls of lacing

Smell: Wheat and some relatively mild Belgian yeast - some nice spices typical for a wit, with some coriander and pepper - interesting floral notes - some grass and light citrus, mostly lemon - some Belgian yeast

Taste: Soft wheat, lemon, and some interesting yeasty notes - wheat, pale malts - some mild Belgian funk, with some yeasty, earthy, and light spicy notes - clove, coriander, pepper, grass, and floral notes - some light citrus, particularly lemon - kind of juicy, refreshing

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth, mostly clean

Overall: Could use more giraffes

This is a nice wit. It's not the most flavorful or robust wit, but I wouldn't say that is a flaw. It is refreshing and definitely great for a hot summer day. Not the most spectacular thing from Logsdon, but it's worth a try.

The bottle was opened 03/02/14. Best by date is 09/2014

A: I poured this witbier into a small tulip, so there was some difficulty in swirling the bottle in order to include some yeast in the first glassful. Therefore, initially it was a clear golden color with a nice 1.5 finger white head full of small dense bubbles. After the first glass, which allowed for some room to swirl the bottle, the color went from a clear kristall to cloudy witbier. The head left nice lacing.

S: Tons of apple juice. Maybe a little hay or straw. I'm not finding much of the coriander, although it is there. I'm having difficulty getting through the apple juice.

T: It is rather delicate before the yeast is included in the pour. Once the yeast is included, there is some phenol spice, but not enough. Apple juice and some funk.

M: Medium-light. On the mark and really the highlight of the beer. Nice carbonation and some light creaminess.

O: I may be off the mark here based on the ratings of others, but I just couldn't get the apple juice flavor out of my head. It felt like I was trying to find a witbier in a glass of apple juice. I don't know. I know this one doesn't have the same rep as the Logsdon saisons, of which I'm a huge fan of the Logsdon Seizoen Bretta, but I thought it would have been better. I'll continue to try anything I can from these guys.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy almost milky pale straw with massive pillowy head. Almost immediately it begins to crater and lump up with giant soapy bubbles and leave lacing trailing around the glass.

S: Smooth funky yeasts with musky melons, cucumber and sweet lemons. Wheaty biscuits with a sweet note - like sweet spices, cardamom and coriander.

T: Clean and fresh with mineral and lemons notes that cleanse the palette, almost like mineral water with a slice of lemon. Spices of coriander and white pepper are subtle in the background with wheat biscuits taking charge up front.

M: Highly carbonated with a light and dry mouthfeel.

O: Refreshing and bright with a funky yeast that's approachable and enjoyable start to finish. The lemon and minerals offer a clean palette that would match excellently with seafood, salads and summer day.

A: Unfiltered, pale straw color, with some beautiful stark white head.

S: Tart, spicy pears, zesty, light, crisp and refreshing

T: Much smoother than I was expecting. Very light tart quality, but the light sweet, and smoothe malt character comes in and balances everything and leaves the mouth deliciously wet. Notes of lemons, not super strong on the spice end.

M: Super light, clean

O: Slight tart quality, smoothe body, light, zesty, refreshing

750ml : Tulip pint

Pours hazy, golden tan, with a fizzy, thick white head. Good retention.

Subtle notes in the nose and palate, bread and wheat, grassy notes upfront. The coriander is pretty faint, but there.

Medium body, crisp, fizzy carbonation.

A good wit, subtle flavors, but easy drinking and well done.

Pours a two finger white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Murky light amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Lemon and yeast nose and flavor is tart lemon, some yeast and hints of coriander. Expensive at $19.95 (includes a glass) for a 750ml bottle from Made in Oregon Portland, Or.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks to Jason for the bottle!

(A)- Pours a cloudy golden orange color. Produced a nice cap of frothy white foam. Good retention and nice layered rings of lacing.

(S)- A nice bone dry grassy aroma. Mild hints of yeasty earth. Subtle lemon and spice. Just a tiny bit of funk.

(T)- Again, this has a nice dryness to it with subtle yeast amidst bits of lemon, apricot, pear, and a subtle earthy spice.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Dry and yeasty, but smooth and a clean finish.

(D)- Overall, I like this. Goes great with the warmer weather we are having. Crisp, but clean and smooth; refreshing. A touch stronger perhaps than you average witbier, but that does not bother me in the slightest.

Reviewing from notes after drinking on 3/27/2014. Enjoyed out of a brown 750 mL brown bottle with a standard cap; no wax enclosure on this one. Marked with a 'best by' date of September 2014, so plenty of time for this one before it's supposedly over the hill. Poured into a 16 oz nonic style tumbler--which is what I've always understood to be the "proper" glass for a witbier--in spite of the bottle's recommendation to use something more like a tulip glass.

Appearance - So far, so good. Standard pour reveals a healthy two finger head of bleached white suds with bubbles that begin to expand almost immediately, giving a webbed Swiss cheese look to the head with slight pocking up top. Beneath the head sits an ideally-colored sunny straw yellow body with a nice dusty haze that gives allows enough light to provide some spun gold highlights with the lemony body. Lacing is present, but light, with some faint sticky traces on the side of the glass.

Smell - Hrm, this is the first sign that I'm not going to love this one. I really like to get a sense of the spicing with wits, otherwise I'd reach for a hefe or a standard wheat beer. This one has some undertones of the citrusy coriander spicing, but they are taking a far backseat to what comes across to me as lots of bready, wheaty tones. On the positive side, I do get the more rustic notes of oat, which is a little different for a witbier and provides a focal point of interest. But really, I need more spicing from my witbiers.

Taste - The taste picks up where the nose left off, with the predominant characteristics coming from the grain bill. Wheat, oats, barley all provide for a rustic, alfalfa-esque characteristic to this beer. The citrus and spicing are very muted, almost nonexistent. I've never had a beer with "African" coriander to my knowledge--maybe it is a more subtle strain of the common wit spice? The other thing that is not working in this beer's favor is that it lacks the pinch of tartness that puts witbiers firmly on that line between sour and non-sour styles. Some of my favorite wits have just enough of a twinge of sour to make them interesting. Nothing that will pucker your tastebuds, just a subtle hint of that flavor profile. St. Bernardus does a good example of this tartness.

Mouthfeel - Pretty on par for what a witbier should be--light bodied and moderate carbonation, although perhaps a bit higher in CO2 than expected. Semi-dry finish.

Overall, I was actually really excited to try this based on my prior experiences with Logsdon. This one just doesn't really hit the mark for me as far as the style goes. I might feel differently had I not come in with witbier expectations, as it was a reasonably tasty beer in it's own right, just not good enough to wear the style that has been selected.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a light golden color with a large sudsy froth of white bubbles that stick to the glass well and has some staying power., The smell is earthy with some wheat and yeast elements.

Flavor has a nice balance of earthy bitterness, wheat and herbal notes. Not tart but far from sweet or bitter in the taste. Earthy, slightly funky farmhouse that drinks very easily.

Mouthfeel is smooth with sturdy carbonation and airy feel. Slightly dry and crisp and not heavy at all.

Overall, a solid Wit, Saison or Farmhouse ale, closer to an import than an average version brewed in the states. Quite nice.

750ml bottle into NB snifter. Best by date 4/2013.

A: Fool me once… I opened this one over the sink reeeally slowly just in case it decided to act like the bottle of seizoen that wound up on my living room floor. Anyway, this bottle was definitely going to be a gusher, but my slow opening skilled saved the day. This beer pours a hazy lemon citrus color with a huge, dense, egg shell white head that took forever to collapse into a thick mousse that left solid sheets of laceing down the glass.
S: Coriander, orange peel, lemon zest, chalky yeast and wheat come through nicely. Slightly sweet smelling as expended with a hint of peppery spices. Perfumey is a good descriptor I think.
T: A bit medicinal, a bit chalky, and a bit unexpected. Smelled great but the taste falls short. Minerally chalky notes of yeast and wheat combine with medicinally fruity flavors of peach, apricot, orange juice and lemon meringue. The finish is full of herbal hoppy spices, coriander, black pepper and clove, and the aftertaste is perfumey and floral with lingering stone fruits. Reminds me of a fruit juice drink.
M: Frothy airy carbonation, medium-thin body despite, and a slick and thin mouthfeel. A strange combination: super frothy but thin.
O: Definitely an interesting flavored witbier, and one I would perhaps drink again if it were in front of me, but I’m afraid there are far better beers in the style. Once I burned off some carbonation in my glass this beer became easier to drink, but the flavors still need some polishing.

Best by June, 2013

Pours like a pilsner, light yellow straw color with loose, bone white foam. Brilliant clarity - unusual for the style. Smells of grain, wet dog, paper, some lemon rind, a little metal and more wet dog. Initial flavor is funky, extra funky, some coriander and a little bit of that sweet classic wit yeast flavor. Just a touch of banana on the finish. Medium on thin for the style with moderate carb and a wet finish. This is intriguing, the nose is interesting as is the flavor, I'd rather it were labeled a farmhouse blond or something as it doesn't really fit into any style.

Thanks to angrybabboon for sharing the bottle.

Appearance: Massive pillowy white head. Rocky and chunky with solid retention. Eventually drops to a small cap with sheets of sticky clumpy lacing. A hazy light gold with moderate carbonation.

Smell: Wheat and some light funk. Coriander adds a soft spice. Light crockery malts with a mild toasted edge. Pear and apricot, loaded with mealy fruit. Some white grape. Some orange flesh. Musty hay and fresh grass. Lightly sweet.

Taste: Apple and wheat. So much fresh apple flesh and skin. White grape and a solid wheat backbone. Slightly toasted barley. Light earthy hops. Musty with some hay and clipped grass. Pear and apricot. Very mild spice from both yeast and coriander. Lightly sweet.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation. Clean and smooth with a medium to light body.

Overall: Taste the safari.

Easy and light. Refreshing and clean. It's not crazy, but it's solid. Logsdon yeast contains magic.

A tough review as I think it misses the style on marks, but it's still darn good. It lacks the contant coriander and orange/lemon that most wits have. Closer to a farmhouse as far as aroma a flavors.

A bit more creamy than their other beers, but I wouldn't call it 'creamy'. Malt is 'thicker' than most wits, too. Of course, this isn't bad...just different. And the beer is very drinkable.

750ml poured into a cervoise. The brew appears a clouded light yellow color with a frothy white cap that stands nearly 3 fingers strong. The cap fades leaving a sudsy full wall of lace on the glass. Overall, she looks perfect for the style.

The aroma is zesty with lemon-like coriander, wheat, sulfur and some earth. There is quite a solid yeastiness to this brew. As it warms up, a little pepper and clove comes through.

The taste is mutually yeasty with an earthen feel. Lemon-like coriander, sulfur, clove and pepper are all noticed mid-palate. Lightly straw-like and grassy into the finish. As it warms up, mild fruit suggestions like pear or apple skins come out in a very subtle way.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is an easy going wit that isnt too shabby but isnt really memorable either. As it breaths, it gets a little soapy which I didnt care for.
